    Another post-1995 movie? The original movie is funny as shit and the remake looks like worst. I can't wait to see you review more sequels and remakes to movies that you already reviewed!

    I recently learned the existance of this film about a week ago on IMDB. (In speaking of which, there's a Brad Jones who edited episode of Jersey Shore.)

    3:29- That's a shame, indeed.

    6:07- Yikes. I'd hate to see THAT board game be adapted to a live action movie.

    8:49- Maybe it's the fact that her kids are not actually hers, as explained in the beginning.

    "JESUS!! ...Is she okay?" LOL

    This movie is too dark and gorry for my taste, but I'll admit that the actress who plays the mother is really f**kin' crazy. Good thing MY mother isn't like that.

    20:10- NOOOOOOO, REALLY!?!?

    I saw this over on Filmbrain's Projector and I was hoping this remake would get the treatment it deserves in a full review. Thank you Snob for being the one to shred this.

    De Mornay....scares the crap out of me...That's a good villain in my book!

    lol, yeah. She was great in "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle" You really did get the feeling of that hating that woman's character. Which is a good indictation they are really into the role of that Character and blend into the performance so well. :)

    In fact, now I want Nostalgia Chick to review that movie after Will Smith month is over. I would like to see her take on those kind of films that try to turn "A woman wanting a family" into something violent and psychopathic.


    Also I love the title card as always Snob. Great work.


    lol, oh Snob, tickets to Battleship, how could you, she gave birth to you. XD

    Wow, two things I didn't expect out of this review:

    1. You're in HD! Well, you're still in 480p-ish quality, but this is cool.

    2. You're doing a review of a modern movie.

    I still want to see the original because it looks so cheesy and corny.

    As I said on the other site I don't think i'd like this movie as the mother builds up so much hate from me if the movie eds in any other way other than the evil mother getting murdered horribly I don't care to see it! I hate movies with setups like this and their no real payoff for me!

    Mother's Day? Isn't this video a little late?
  • thecommunistotter
    my friends and i just watched this movie last night, which made this video a nice surprise. We had generally the same opinions except none of us recognized the actress who played the mother, heh. We really didn't like the ending though, and all wished the doctor had lived. It was a good way to waste time while still hanging out but otherwise not very good.

    I liked the part where the guy got shot in the head with a Naaail Guuun! Sorry, just seemed perfect for that reference. Nice review.

    Dude, all remakes/reboots SUCK!!!!! With the only exception being John Carpenter's "The Thing! And maybe the remake of True Grit. And the Nolan Batman movies.....and the Hammer films......and the remake of Last house on the Left was actually not bad.....Oh, David Cronenberg's "The Fly" that movie was awsome, OK, THERE ARE SOME GOOD REMAKES/REBOOTS! But I think we can at least agree that there are way to many coming out now, and most of them are unnecessary at best, and horrible and ridiculas at worst.

    Shit, that was harsh. Nice review, Brad. Keep up the good work.

    Wait, who did the art? There's no credit below the video. It looks awesome!
  • Ovaltine  - About the art credit
    avatar
    You can see it in the opening video credits Trlkly.

    Another excellent review Snob! Can never have enough Snob.

    Heh, I honestly have a bit of a hard time gauging your genuine feelings on this film (that I have not seen myself). Almost all the humor and critiscisms were down to the character of the Cinema Snob we all know and love, but it seems you didn't have that bad a time with this movie, despite the review being as fantastic as always.

    I'd be interested in seeing a few more recent films, or other remakes of films you've reviewed before (as other people above me in the comments section have pointed out). Anyway, one of the most amusing of your CS reviews for a while, thank you.

    "Oh Cinema Snob, oh cinema snob,
    'twas not the son who chose to rob
    The money of the house entrusted
    To the Mother, ever mistrusted
    But those that had themselves to blame
    And for such greed were given pain."

    I didn't recognise her with brown hair. I know her as a blonde, i.e. The three musketeers (disney), Don't talk to strangers, and others from the 90s.

    I hate downer endings. Why couldn't Rebecca Demournay just die like she was supposed to? That's how these home invasion movies are supposed to go.
  • Dr. Robotnik
    Almost every horror movie ever made has a downer ending. It's an expected part of the genre, although I can certainly understand your frustration.

    Also, a Reservoir Dogs reference. I love you Cinema Snob.
  • TheDogSannin
    avatar
    But this is a home invasion movie too, which always ends with the villains losing.

    Well, except for "Funny Games", but that movie sucks. And before anyone bitches, YES, I know it's 'got a message', but a message doesn't automatically make it good.

    I could make a movie that's ninety minutes of dogs fucking and claim it has a 'message', but that doesn't make it NOT ninety minutes of dogs fucking.

    And really, if I wanted someone to be a condescending ass to me through the TV, I'd watch Bill Maher.

    The Snob has seen Repo! The Genetic Opera? .... Very, very cool. I love Repo... Anthony Head ripping out spines, in song... Brilliant

    Nah, I see the point in covering the mother's face at the beginning. It could have been Frank Zappa!

    That was one twisted movie. I wonder is orginal as twisted as this remake.

    "Carrie White" (aka Lydia Koffin) is played by Deborah Ann Woll. She plays the hotness that is Vamp Jessica on True Blood. I want to see her boobs. She never shows them.

    Seriously, I don't care about Jake from the Animorphs or Jaime King.

    Jessica. Boobs out. Now.

    Are you sure this is actually a remake, and not just a different movie with the same name?
  • RedMiel
    I had to make an account just to say that this was filmed in my town.
    The floodlights made it pretty hard to sleep at night.

    4:17 - *cringes at the scene in the original where the female leads are arguing over the left/right directions* I am so glad they took THAT out of the remake. o___o
  • Amesang

    Aww, I was expecting "Jet Set" for the fight music.
  • YellowJello
    avatar
    Might be the best one you've made. You should review more recent movies like this. lol
  • soulalcatraz

    Wow Brad, you really had the Snob level at 11 for this one. "The remake can never be better, even when the remake is better, the original is always better." I love it.
  • 4thtroika

    I actually liked this version. The original, from what I recall of it, not so much.

    For my first CinemaSnob review, I have to say Brad, I was cynical to many producers and you were n't my cup of tea, at first, but dear god, was I wrong! You had me laughin' the whole way through.

    This movie...this...FUCKING movie! I hate to rage, but yes, just like all OTHER modern home invasion movies, its painfully generic, the shaky cam is all over the place, and what the hell -- the writing is so bad it makes me want to break the fourth wall, and slaughter all of the characters with a 20 billion light year katana.

    I will say it was better acted though, it seems many modern exploitation films are...but then again, the actors don't dumb themselves down and I'm glad being an adult, I have the choice to NOT see certain movies. A big part of horror has become these stupidly written, gore-tastic, no actual horror movies, just exploitation. This isn't the case with all movies, but goddamn, thanks for ripping this movie apart with your magnificence. I salute thee! *salutes*

    Brad, keep it up. Mother's Day, just...stop.
